From Michaelerberghaus, you will head via Loskögerl to the Kochofen, where you can enjoy a majestic view of the Sölk and Sattental. From there, continue heading towards Spateck and take the junction towards the Schladming Alps at Schladminger Törl and back to Michaelerberghaus via the Stiegleralm.

You can enjoy a beautiful view of the Ennstal, the Dachstein and the Ramsau mountains. The climb to the peak immediately begins with a steep step on a road; only a few flat areas interrupt the climb. You mostly go uphill in the forest, occasionally interrupted by a beautiful and in-depth view of the Sattental, until reaching the Loskögerl crossroad (1,548m).

With a beautiful view of the Sattental and the Kleinsölk, the path continues slightly uphill until the last climb to the summit cross. Then comes another uphill climb until you can see the cross from afar.

After a brief rest, the path continues at the summit cross on the right side of the ridge towards Spateck. There is a steady uphill and downhill traverse through Fleischkögel, Lafenberg, up to Dromeisspitz (2,047 m) and down once again to Schladminger Törl (1,945). There, turn right towards the Schladming Alps (Path no. 22).

Upon arrival at the Schladming Alps, follow Forststraße out of the valley into the north until reaching the Stiegleralm’s first signpost. From there, walk towards the right and follow the climb and signposts to the serviced Stiegleralm cabin. After taking a break, continue through the Jägerstieg - first, the climb will lead through a meadow, through the forest and directly to the Kochofen hiking path. Make a left at this crossroads and head down to the Michaelerberghaus starting point.
